The group arrived at the Unimart Building, which houses Brigham's abortion operation, at 12:30 PM. Approximately 20 demonstrators from the State College community were already assembled along Beaver Avenue, waiting for the Erie people to arrive. Their demonstration had begun at 11:30 AM.
The Erie people were especially pleased to meet, among the State College demonstrators, a representatives from the Penn State Students for Life.
The Erie group's message was very clear: Erie is a pro-life community with strong family values. Our community is already doing a wonderful job of providing the help and support that is sometimes needed by women who are experiencing untimely pregnancies. We, however, do not believe in taking human lives as a solution to social and/or personal problems. Erie does not want Dr. Brigham, or his abortion service!
Although the passing motorists occasionally honked their horns in approval, their reactions were perhaps not as remarkably enthusiastic as the reactions the demonstrators have come to expect from Erie motorists. The Erie group was, nevertheless, pleased with the level of support that was apparent in State College.
Meanwhile, in Erie, about 60 people picketed the Professional Building at 1611 Peach St., from 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM. Next demonstration: This Thursday at noon. Brigham has purchased six office suites in the Professional Building and announced that he has applied to the PA Health Department for permission to start "terminating" there.
The group returned safely to Erie at approximately 7:00 PM this evening.
